Features of the Pulsar vB – HAV Meter:

  • Only 3 operational buttons for simple use
  • Tri-axial vibration meter
  • Meets ISO 8041:2005 (Human response to vibration) for compliance with ISO 5359:2001 (Measurement and evaluation of human exposure to hand-transmitted vibration)
  • Large dynamic range: Frequency range 2hz – 500hz +/-10%
  • Measurement paramaters: acceleration, Aeq, Amax, Peak, Vector Sum, Exposure Points
  • Re-chargeable battery pack and charger
  • Large ‘Flash’ memory storing up to 992 recordings
  • Rugged accelerometer, and impact resistant body and cable
  • Large colour OLED display with colour coded measurements (Red, Amber, Green)

Workers are at risk of HAVS if they regularly use hand-held or hand-guided power tools and machines such as:

  • Concrete breakers, concrete pokers;
  • Sanders, grinders, disc cutters;
  • Hammer drills;
  • Chipping hammers;
  • Chainsaws, brush cutters, hedge trimmers,
  • Powered mowers;
  • Scabblers or needle guns.

Workers are also at risk if they hold work pieces which vibrate while being processed by powered machinery such as pedestal grinders.

They are particularly at risk if they regularly operate:

  • hammer action tools for more than about 15 minutes per day; or
  • some rotary and other action tools for more than about one hour per day

As they are likely to be above the exposure action value set out in the regulations.
